Statement on Coroner's inquest
Date of issue: Thursday 12th July 2012
We deeply regret the death of Kane Gorny and have apologised unreservedly to his family for the grief this has caused.
We provide safe, high quality healthcare services to over one million patients across south west London every year, but it is clear that the care we provided on this occasion fell short of expectation in a number of respects and for this we are profoundly sorry.
We have admitted civil liability for the failures in Kane's care and we fully accept the Coroner's verdict.
Since Kane died in 2009, we have made changes to senior leadership on our wards and put a number of patient safety measures in place.
Dr Ros Given-Wilson
